Our garden is near Cave Junction, Oregon. The Chetco Bar Fire (enormous, you can look at the aerial view) caused a 10-day period when there was no sun -- sky was obscured by smoke. Followed by a couple days of rain, which cleared the skies -- sunshine! : )
About a week after the sunshine returned (4 days ago), white spots of Powdery Mildew were on every plant in the garden. I want to spray with Aerated Compost Tea, and/or Regalia, but does anyone know whether that will cause the buds to mold in this Illinois Valley climate? Has anyone actually done this?
